Spoiler Alert! {CTD337}

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown!  This week we are up to CTD337 and my dear friend Bar has challenged us to use orange, light blue, green and white!


These colors just screamed 70’s to me, so I pulled out the super fun LLD Stay Tuned set and got to work!  I started by creating the TV using the LLD Television Die-namics, and I cut it from Gumdrop Green Card Stock.  I added the frame and antenna using Ranger Silver Foil Card Stock.  The TV screen was cut from Berrylicious Card Stock and I stamped “SPOILER ALERT (There’s a gift card inside) using Versamark and then embossed it with White Embossing Powder.


I stamped a strip of Smooth White Card Stock using several stamps from LLD Stay Tuned using Berrylicious Premium Dye Ink, Gumdrop Green Premium Dye Ink, Orange Fizz Premium Dye Ink and Kraft Premium Dye Ink.  I added a strip of Ranger Silver Foil Card Stock and a strip of Berrylicious Card Stock stamped with the Diagonal Striped Background using Berrylicious Premium Dye Ink.



On the inside, I cut a panel of Kraft Card Stock using Blueprints 1 Die-namics and added a mat of Smooth White Card Stock cut with Blueprints 2 Die-namics.   I added another strip of Smooth White Card Stock to the bottom stamped with the same pattern and colors as I used on the front.  I added a groove for a gift card using the Gift Card Grooves Die-namics (these are seriously SO cool), and I stamped “Happy Birthday” using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.
